Hashing and Steganography

This lesson talks about Hashing and Steganography. Hashing is a mathematical integrity checking process.  You’ll learn how it’s configured, observe what it reveals and how it determines the integrity of an object and how it relates to the key encryption process.

Steganography is the process of hiding information.  In the second half of our lesson, you’ll learn how Steganography works, what tools you can use to hide and reveal data, images, within other objects as part of the Steganographic process and why it’s challenging to detect if you are unaware of Steganography technology.

We close out this lesson with a discussion and examples of proven encryption technologies and what specifics you’ll need to know for the Security+ Exam.
